Wide receiver Andre Johnson #80 of the Houston Texans is separated by umpire Garth DeFerlice #53 from cornerback Cortland Finnegan #31 of the Tennessee Titans after the two exchanged punches in the fourth quarter at Reliant Stadium on November 28, 2010 in Houston, Texas.
Unlike most Sundays, yesterday, the Dallas Cowboys were afforded the chance to sit around, scratch themselves, eat hot wings until their faces were stained orange, and watch football, like the rest of us. And like us, they got to see the NFL’s preeminent pest, the Tennessee Titans’ Cortland Finnegan, get punched in the head repeatedly by the Texans’ Andre Johnson.
Considering Finnegan’s reputation--he once punched Denver’s Chris Kuper when his helmet was off, and threw the New York Giants’ Steve Smith to the ground by his helmet--and his past with the Cowboys--he got into a fight with Roy Williams in a preseason game last year--many were glad to see some comeuppance for Finnegan at the hands of the usually mild-mannered Johnson.
This group included the Cowboys’ Tashard Choice.
"Andre johnson way to go," said Choice on his Twitter account, per the Dallas Morning News. "My boy got hands. Lmbo."
For those unfamiliar with interweb lingo, that “Lmbo” thing means that Choice was, like a lot of us, “laughing his butt off.”
